Home / Blog & News / A formula that works for you. Is a flexible office agreement the solution for entrepreneurs?

The entrepreneurial landscape has suffered a serious setback during the past months. But nevertheless, there is still perspective for the future! Teleworking was, and still is, the norm for many companies. This has resulted in many business offices being vacant. However, 'working from home' is not a given for everyone and the need to return to the productive working environment is increasing. A hybrid office arrangement or flexible office terms can be the solution.

The need for a hybrid approach everywhere

A hybrid work formula gives companies insight into the development of the entrepreneurial landscape. By 'hybrid' we mean a ‘golden middle’ for entrepreneurs and employees who prefer to keep working from home, as well as those who are more comfortable in a creative and productive office environment. For each of them, a suitable solution will be sought within the new system.

The flexible way of working is shifting the office market. Whereas until a while ago everyone gathered within one large headquarters, offices are now slimmed down. Not only does this lead to a reduction in relocation costs, property costs are also being reduced. Budget that can now be invested elsewhere. Employees who do not necessarily have to be in the office are now given the choice: either work from their own living room or opt for a professional, short-lived working environment on the move. And that is precisely the advantage of business centers such as Frame21.

'A formula that works for you'

Depending on the needs of entrepreneurs, companies, as well as their employees, 'tailor-made collaborations' are increasingly becoming the norm. Under the motto 'the best of all worlds', business centres can respond to business needs and offer the possibility of concluding 'hybrid contracts' as well. On fixed days when the presence of the majority of employees is expected, co-working spaces provide 'accommodation' for all these people. If there are times when that presence is not necessary, a switch can be made to a more variable flexible working alternative. Still need a meeting room? You can also stipulate this weekly at fixed times within the same contract.

In addition, a short-stay office can also offer solace, whereby a contract is drawn up for a shorter period of time, e.g. one month. This additional flexibility gives an extra boost to start-ups, entrepreneurs or companies with a foreign head office who still want to maintain a foothold in other countries. Employees who make the decision on their own to work from location can also go to the business centre without a contract, providing a home for everyone without too much commitment. And admit it yourself, that's what it's all about, isn't it?
